Autistic Daughters – “Uneasy Flowers” – [Staubgold]

lombard   2/24/2009   12-inch, A Library

On their 2nd release, “Uneasy Flowers” from 2008, Autistic Daughters create a moody atmosphere with their slow, quiet musical creations accompanied by emotional male vocals. Autistic Daughters is mainly a trio made up of New Zealander Dean Roberts (vocals, acoustic/electric guitars), Vienna’s Martin Brandlmayr (drums, vibraphone, computer based processing), and Werner Dafeldecker (double bass, electric guitars). There’s also some guest piano from Chris Abrahams and mandoguitar by Martin Siewert.It’s pleasant, yet raw with lyrical gems like “feral roses.” For example, the opening track (“Rehana’s Theme”) sounds sweet, but the lyrics belie that (“You’re a bunch of cunts the lot of you”), and create an interesting tension when punctuated by hand claps.

Programming Note: Language on Track 1/Side 1- “Rehana’s Theme”
